A fantastically rare 7×9 inch photo from the SAN FRANCISCO BUREAU of Acme Newspictures 1935 of Chinese leaders believed to favor a new state. These three political and military leaders in North. China while they have not opening declared in favor of independence.

Kenji Doihara, was instigator of the Mukden incident. Focuses on the cross-examination the defense attorney’s gave to Teh-chun.
